The Players Say It Best

The players respond to the criticisms of Coach Umile in the title-linked Concord Monitor article from Dave D'Onofrio.

Great article Dave!

Quotes from the article:
"We know what everyone is saying. I don't think Coach gets the credit he deserves," junior wing Jerry Pollastrone said. "We had one of the best seasons in the program. I know winning championships is what it is, but it's frustrating when you've got people bashing your coach, because it's up to the players, too."

"Being a coach at a high level, you have to be willing to take that kind of heat. But at the same time I don't think it's fair at all what they're saying," said senior defenseman Brad Flaishans, noting that Umile was this week named New England coach of the year. "As seniors, it's very disappointing that he has to take that heat because he's always willing to take that heat for us, or for the team, because that's the kind of person that he is. When it's undeserved like this, it's ridiculous in my mind."
